Im smokin some pork butt today on the mini wsm. it is its first try with charcoal. I used cinnomin, satl, raw sugar, garlic, honey mustard and chilie powder as the rub. not sure if it will taste good. haha. I have pics but give me a few to get everything settled.

followed the directions from the virtual weber bullet exactly.I took about 15-20 lit coals and topped the unlit with it. I let the coals get all ashy and white. I had two pieces of hickory in the unlit ready to go. I poured the let on and waited 45 min till the temp stayed at 250 and had tbs. So i put the meat on and was good to go. so i thought. I watched it for about an hour, then needed to run down the street to see my wife at work. came back 15 min later and it was puffin white smoke. the temp still was at 250-275 and chuggin along. took the body off the base and saw the smokey wood chunk. one was almost carbonized by now, which is normal, and the other one still had some wood to burn. Once i put the base back on, 30 seconds after i took it off. it was fine and dandy. looked outside, nice tbs. 15 min later, went down the street to pick up a salad, literally 1 block away. came back 10 min later AND white smoke again. cleared it once again and we are tbs. so it slike when i leave, it wants me back so it chugs white smoke, and once i return, it chugs tbs.... so odd. Bottom vents are 1/3rd to half way open and top vents are all the way open.

been here 30 minutes and its still tbs. makes me laugh. haha. it has plenty of airbecause my temps are staying even at around 265. so i know its not chocking out. like i said,i followed the directions from the virtual weber bullet exactly. Yes, this time to a T.

pics are on the way

you can see the carbonized wood in the last pic. its all white around the ages because there was a 10 minute gap between the time i took it out and took the pic. haha. its been 1 hour now and it is still little or no smoke which is a good thing.

anyway enjoy

Don't sweat the color of the smoke so much.. If you start up your charcoal properly and put the wood chunks in there, everything will be fine. Let the temp get up to where you want it and settled in then put your meat on and let thing run their course.

yeah i need to learn to not worry so much. I mean, i let it get to temp for 45 min, then i put the meat on and it was great for an hour or so then i saw the white smoke... oh noo, i then panicked. haha. but the rest of the cook went great. didnt think the cinnamon would taste good in a rub but it does.

tahnks guys

i can actually taste that pic...in my mind. and it is very, very, good.

i have got to build me one of these.

firing up a 22.5 WSM for 1 peice of meat is, to say the least, wasteful.

totally understandable. this thing is great for a family of 4. I use the weber 22.5 grill as a smoker and a grill. BUT the mini rocks. i have three cooking grates in it.
